Just for some posting content today...
I thought I would past my interview with GirlPunk.net
Click here to see it in person... RockerByeBaby Interview
How did your interest in your business begin?
As a mother of 2, I have learned that it is VERY expensive to keep you rockin babies looking rock n roll. Hot Topic charges almost $20 for a onesie that lasts only a few
months... if even that long. I was SO tired of the cheezy teddy bears and duckies; the mint green and baby blue... I knew there had to be more.
One day I just HAPPENED to walk into the fabric store and saw this awesome black and white skull fabric. I did not know such a thing existed!! So Istarted thinking, I could make a blanket out of this for the boys... so I did! MANY MANY compliments later, I decided I should share this with other Rockstar mama's like myself. And I swore I would sell my stuff as cheap as I could so that it is always affordable to have the things to keep the kiddies lookin "cool".
What made you want to start selling your creations and what were your expectations of it?
I was getting stopped by people left and right about my blankets. So I started making onesies and got the same reaction. I was a
stay at home mom at the time, so I figured I could put some time into some "crafting" make some cool stuff for my kids and if I sold some, awesome, but my expectations were pretty low. I never imagined it would be helping to pay the bills. Not to mention that my "selling blankets" has now turned into custom quilts, car seat covers, full crib sets, bibs, diaper clutches, etc etc etc.I couldn't be any happier at how this has turned out.
Is RockerByeBaby your only job?
I also work at a local store here in theTwin Cities called Patina (www.patinastores.com). Oh, and I take care of 2 kids and a daddy and a townhome. Haha My jobs are never ending.
Where do you draw inspiration for your creations?*
My kids are always my inspiration - and baby girls because I dont have one. Some of the coolest stuff I have made has been for little girls. I want one, but not enough to be pregnant AGAIN, haha, so I will just continue creating for OTHER cute little girls.
